I am a counsellor and supervisor with 22 years experience of working with depression, anxiety, sexuality, migration, living with and caring for a long term health condition and sexual/relationship issues. I have worked with people of all ages, genders, sexuality and backgrounds. I work with individuals and couples and have worked with clients on a short and long term basis. My private practice is based in West Kensington near to the North End Road and West Kensington, Baron's Court, West Brompton tube stations. I am also able to offer sessions online.
For couples, counselling offers a safe space to explore those difficult discussions where you keep getting stuck, helps you develop a better understanding of each other, and work towards improved communication.
I am currently an advanced trainee in Psychosexual Therapy.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are £55 for individuals and £80 for couples with some low cost places available.
I charge £50 for supervision.
I am also registered with Private Health Insurance provider WPA.
Counselling can also offer support through life's challenges for example, an affair, bereavement, redundancy, moving to a new country, 'coming out', living with long term illness and recovering from physical or sexual abuse. I am committed to providing you with a safe, confidential, non judgmental space to explore your feelings, to help you understand yourself better and helping you to move forward.
I can also offer sessions by Skype.
